    Eliot Spitzer's ex-wife finally has something to smile about after the details of her multimillion-dollar divorce settlement from the disgraced 'Luv Guv' were revealed today. Silda Wall Spitzer gets a $7.5million payout and to keep her luxury Fifth Avenue apartment overlooking Central Park in Manhattan as part of the deal. The ex-New York governor's former wife, who grimly stood by him when his predilection for expensive call girls came to light in 2008, will also receive $240,000-a-year maintenance for life.

    In what has been described as the "first scandal of the de Blasio administration," Lis Smith, a former Obama campaign aide and current spokeswoman for New York City mayor-elect Bill de Blasio's transition, is reportedly dating disgraced and still-married former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer. According to a report in the New York Daily News, Smith, who had worked for Spitzer's failed campaign for comptroller, has been in a relationship with the "hooker-scandal-disgraced ex-governor who’s been living apart from his wife." Spitzer is 56 and Smith is 31.

The mayor-elect on Monday praised his spokeswoman Lis Smith despite revelations in The Post that she is shacking up with her married former boss — disgraced-ex Gov. Eliot Spitzer. “I respect Lis as a professional but I also respect her right to privacy. So I’m not going to get any further into it,” de Blasio said during a news conference in Brooklyn to announce two new appointments to his administration.

  • Why Anthony Weiner sinks while Eliot Spitzer soars

    Politico ^ | 08/19/2013 | Gary Bauer
    The most interesting question surrounding the campaigns of Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer is not whether they can win. Instead, it is whether their candidacies signal a shift in the values and priorities of voters when it comes to political sex scandals. The main difference between past and current political sex scandals is not the frequency with which they occur, but rather the time it takes to recover from them. In the past, once a politician’s sex scandal was revealed, it often took him (it’s almost always him) many years to regain credibility with the public, if he regained it...

    It has been said that “he who lives by the sword shall die by the sword.” And in the case of Eliot Spitzer this couldn’t be more true. In his case it’s the political sword, as his enemies rejoice in his downfall. Most people, it seems, believe he got exactly what he deserved. The illegal tools of the state brought Spitzer down, but think of all the harm done by Spitzer in using the same tools against so many other innocent people. He practiced what could be termed “economic McCarthyism,” using illegitimate government power to build his political career on...

    Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), he of the quixotic GOP presidential campaign and unique policy positions, is never one to be shy about his opinions. Take the case of fallen New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer (D), whose political career fell apart this week after his liaisons with high-priced call girls became public. Spitzer resigned his office effective Monday. Most politicians from both sides of the aisle publicly (at least) offered condolences for Spitzer and his poor family, including his three daughters, but didn't — of course — defend Spitzer's atrocious behavior. But for Paul, Spitzer's downfall at the hands of a...

    As Ariel Castro, the convicted kidnapper, rapist and baby killer, shuffled off in chains to the hoosegow, I thought why was there so little reportage or commentary about his idiotic statement made in an Ohio courtroom. Is it because the man himself is so repugnant? Is it because his transgressions against society are so repulsive? I think it is both and one thing more. Americans have heard all this claptrap before. We are familiar with the rumblings of a sociopath. A sociopath, in plain language unadorned by the psychiatrists' hocus-pocus, is a person who does not know right from wrong,...

    Even a man who repeatedly cheated on his wife with high-priced hookers thinks Anthony Weiner is a bad husband. As he campaigns for city controller, former Gov. Eliot Spitzer has been shaking hands at subway stops and visiting churches without his wife, Silda Wall, anywhere in sight. But Spitzer and his team claim her absence is only because the former Love Gov is interested in protecting her. “Regarding (Silda’s) appearances on the campaign trail, no husband would ask his wife and family to step into the media frenzy surrounding the campaign at this time,” Spitzer spokeswoman Lisa Linden said.

That broke it for The New York Times: "The serially evasive Mr. Weiner should take his marital troubles and personal compulsions out of the public eye, away...

    After weeks of carefully managed political repair work that has lifted Anthony Weiner from sexting scandal punch line to front-runner in the New York City mayoral campaign, he suddenly faces a threat from someone who’s not even in the same race: Eliot Spitzer. The former New York governor’s surprise entry into the city comptroller’s race now means there are two sex scandal-comeback stories competing for the media’s attention, and the constant mention of both in the same breath has once again put Weiner back under the lens of infamy he has worked so hard to escape. “It’s horrible timing, just...

Why are the dually disgraced Eliot Spitzer and Anthony Weiner running for office after engaging in public peccadilloes that would have doubtless persuaded many a lesser man to stay home? Only they know for sure -- their reasoning is probably a bit different than their public pronouncements. They may have been inspired by the recent election of the disgraced former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, who won the special election for his state's...

In fact, before I knew more about Chick-fil-A, I used to joke about helping to open one in New York. Then I found out the company, according to the LGBT group Equality Matters, has donated millions of dollars to groups that oppose gay rights, and Chick-fil-A's president, Dan Cathy, told a Baptist newspaper that he supported the "biblical" definition of family. That’s why former Gov. Mike Huckabee of Arkansas has asked that folks who share the...

He put Tim Geithner in as Treasury secretary, and Geithner and [National Economic Council Director Lawrence] Summers together were very much status quo voices.”

Bush.” On Afghanistan and Tax Policy, Spitzer tried to make the case that Obama is just a continuation of George W. Bush’s policies. That is, of course, a ridiculous assertion. While George W. Bush spent too much, he was nothing like Obama. He stood strong in Iraq while Obama wanted to cut and run, willing to accept defeat. Bush would have never pursued the massive ObamaCare legislation, and he certainly would not have projected...

    Last night’s “Parker-Spitzer” saw the lowest numbers yet for the program and the show did little to help the one that followed on the schedule — “Larry King Live” which had its worst numbers in more than 10 years. In its sixth outing, “Parker-Spitzer” drew 311,000 Total Viewers and 86,000 A25-54 viewers. That’s lower than the previous low for the time period set by Campbell Brown earlier this year. (332,000 / 87,000). Last week, Parker-Spitzer finished fourth in the time period averaging 465,000 Total Viewers and 124,000 A25-54. At 9pmET, “Larry King Live” put up its lowest A25-54 demo viewership...

    CNN Just Clocked Its Worst Primetime Ratings In 10 Years Thanks To Eliot Spitzer And Larry King Joe Pompeo | Oct. 12, 2010, 5:51 PM | 161 | comment 6 CNN executives say they want to give Eliot Spitzer and Kathleen Parker's week-old discussion program time to grow. But perhaps they're reconsidering in light of the show's performance Monday night, when it drew just 311,000 viewers at 8 p.m., according to Nielsen Media Research, far fewer than it had any night last week following its Oct. 4 premiere. The low numbers for "Parker Spitzer" helped give CNN its worst average...

    Spitzer: Drinking establishments are adding jobs, "we are drinking away our sorrows, but this is not happy hour". In his opening argument on "Parker Spitzer," Eliot Spitzer says the real unemployment rate is 12.9 percent.

    With insightful backwards logic like this, the new CNN show “Parker Spitzer” is certain to be a runaway hit – if just for the comedic value alone. On CNN’s Oct. 8 broadcast of “Parker Spitzer,” disgraced former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, the co-host of this program, trotted out a theory that seems so peculiar one might think he was pre-excusing what many feel is the eventual Republican takeover of the U.S. House of Representatives. (h/t Greg Pollowitz) “Let's switch gears for a second,” Spitzer said. “Earlier today or a couple days ago, Newt Gingrich said 60 seats would be...

    Someone call The Police . . . What were the Parker Spitzer producers thinking? If there was one guy you'd want to keep at a decent distance from a female co-host, it's Gov. Love Potion #9. But tuning into the show, for the first time, tonight, I was shocked to see the way the pair had been virtually thrown into each other's laps. A bit of inside TV baseball: I host a local TV show in my hometown. I'm always struck by how, when I'm sitting what feels quite close to a guest, we appear miles apart on camera. So...
  • CNN’s Parker Spitzer debut draws only 460,000 viewers

    CNN's new show “Parker Spitzer,” which made its debut Monday night, attracted only 454,000 viewers, a decline from the show it replaced, The New York Times reported Tuesday. The show netted 118,000 viewers in the 25-54 age demographic coveted by advertisers. The program features former New York Democratic Governor Eliot Spitzer -- who resigned in disgrace in 2008 after a prostitute scandal -- and Kathleen Parker, a conservative columnist, in a dual anchor format. It lagged well behind 8pm ET rivals “The O’Reilly Factor” on Fox News Channel and “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” on MSNBC. Those two shows drew audiences...

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – CNN's primetime talk show anchored by disgraced ex-New York governor Eliot Spitzer and journalist Kathleen Parker debuted to scathing reviews, with comments on Tuesday ranging from "unbearable" to "icky" and "obnoxious". Spitzer, a Democrat who was forced to resign in 2008 for hiring high-priced prostitutes, and Parker, a Pulitzer Prize-winning conservative Washington Post columnist, were hired by CNN in a bid to add some fireworks to its struggling evening news line-up. But barely a good word could be found on Tuesday for the new "Parker Spitzer" show, which debuted one night earlier as a daily discussion...

    Is CNN a joke or have we gone back to the Dark Ages? No sooner has the dust cleared on brain-dead racist Rick Sanchez than the network brings us a new show with whoremaster Eliot Spitzer! CNN, lest we forget, is a news organization. They want us to respect them. How desperate for ratings they must have become. With MSNBC presenting the execrable Olbermann, even though no one watches him, CNN cannot stand still. Out goes the wretched Sanchez, in comes the sleazy Spitzer.Well, I guess it’s okay. The ex-gov of New York’s prostitution scandal was way back in 2008....
